Your house has a story and a great personality, she just hasn’t put makeup on in years.

Let’s give her a makeover.


The Ivory Slate is a boutique design studio in Hamilton, NY specializing in projects ranging from “It’s not terrible, but could use some freshening up,” to “Does anyone have the number for a bulldozer?!” I work with you to find your style, maybe help you update your style, and then take your space from lackluster to lovely. My goal is to bring a smile to your face each time you come home. When you proudly invite your friends over for that dinner party you’ve always dreamed of and people actually take pictures of your space, I will know I’ve done my job.


 
 

What Clients Are Saying

We were lucky enough to work with Abby on a few separate projects - for our home and a lodging business. Our priorities were to create a cohesive theme for three unique spaces on one property within a budget. One property was a blank slate, but two of them required her to work with some existing features (furniture, room colors, etc.) that we did not want to change. Not only did Abby achieve our goal, but gave our property a beauty we enjoy daily and our guests constantly rave about. We quickly exceeded our lodging goals and I truly believe we have Abby’s designs to thank for that.

Abby goes above and beyond for her clients!! I was someone who thought I knew my style but I didn’t. Abby helped me understand what I like & dislike. She created a mood board for my living room that I absolutley LOVE. She also helped me learn how to feel more confident in my decision making by teaching me about my personal design style. She has been with me every step of the way during this design process. She doesn’t just hit send once the mood board is completed & you never hear from her again. She follows up with you & continues to help in any way needed because she wants you to LOVE your space. I am so grateful for her kindness & patience. Abby truly cares about her clients & is passionate about her work. I love following her live story on instagram too. She gives great tips on there!
